Many people in the world today claim that there is no God. A Statement like this is valid when, and only when, all the possibilities have been exhausted. For example: If a person claimed that there were 1,000 rivers in China and none of them was named “Blue Blue Sky.” How many rivers would he have to be familiar with? All 1,000. Even 0,999 will not be sufficient to establish his claim.
The real question
So, here is the question: How can one say there is no God and deny, His nature, His work, His character and His attributes, if he has not exhausted all the other possibilities which are infinite as much as His universe is infinite.
And to investigate the possibilities, where does man begin in this vast space? Can a person even escape Earth’s gravity, solar system, time or space and venture into the unknown? And where does man stand in relation to the universe? Man on his own simply vanishes like a vapor.
So, logically to exhaust all the possibilities and prove there is no God, a person has to possess the attributes of God Himself or become some sort of a god! This would be the minimum expected. Otherwise, he has no argument at all.
But just one look around the world today with all of its unsolved problems, untold miseries, and countless limitations, can convince anyone that man is very powerless and incapable of even fixing the troubles that he created that plagues his planet.
Science and man
In fact, if these problems continue (and we know that they will) without supernatural intervention, our planet will go extinct. Stephen Hawking, a well known physicist, predicted that humans would turn the planet into a giant ball of fire by 2600 due to overcrowding and energy consumption which will make Earth uninhabitable. And he added in a BBC documentary that, “With climate change, overdue asteroid strikes, epidemics and population growth, our own planet is increasingly precarious.”
Hawking’s predictions were similar to Space X and Tesla CEO Elon Musk. He said in an article in the journal New Space that there will be an “extinction event” if humans stay on Earth. Not surprisingly, many others scientists agree with this opinion.
Since, man can’t save himself from his doomed destiny, how will he figure out what is out there in space? In his ultimate state of insignificance in comparison to the vast universe, man, simply put, is finite. Lets be honest and logical. No man can claim there is no God.
